So meanwhile back at the ranch, we had a family reunion in Spanish Fork August 2012.
My parents had a boat in Seattle and not many people wanting to use a boat.
There were many people in Spanish Fork wanting to use a boat but not having one.
So the boat moved to Utah and a beautiful relationship was born.
And by beautiful I mean the kind of relationship where you load up the car with
snacks, sunscreen, and a billion kids in swim suits with towels.
Once you get to the lake and go through the lovely process of getting the boat into the water
much of the time, it hasn't started. This results in complaining from the kids who
now get to play on the beach and watch the other people with functioning boats
driving past. But this time apparently the boat read the schedule for the family
reunion and decided to cooperate.
The kids loved riding in the tubes. We set up a rotation where different groups with
different interests and abilities came out at different times. No one with a camera came
with the older boys who all water skied.
But we did get some great shots of the younger girl groups.
Here are Diana and Raeley
And here they are again. Uncle Andrew made sure that they all got
a great turn and then he managed to bounce them off of the tube, which of course was
their favorite part.
Trent got a turn to drive. He enjoyed that part as much as being in the water.
Miles was ready for a nap and went ahead and slept through the whole event.
Lizzie, Ali, and Brooklyn
Riding in the front of the boat is almost as fun as being in the tube.
The older girls, Laura, Raeley, Megan, and Diana

a crucial but thankless job!
